My Game 1 Recap: Preview Edition

The scene is set.  Two original six teams do battle once more, renewing acquaintances for the first time since the Rangers knocked out Carey Price and the Montreal Canadiens in the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals.  In the case of Price it was literal, figurative of course in terms of the Canadiens in general. Many in […]

Former Rangers Missing Out

He never played a game for the Rangers last year, but was he still under contract to the team.  Wade Redden perhaps surprisingly to many, will potentially see post season action with the Boston Bruins after a four year trip through the hockey wilderness. A number of other contracted players, no longer with the Blueshirts, will […]

Sather Continues To Deal

Earlier today New York Ranger General Manager Glen Sather dealt winger Marian Gaborik and minor league defensemen Steven Delisle and Blake Parlett to the Columbus Blue Jackets for forwards Derick Brassard, Derek Dorsett, defenseman John Moore, and a 2014 sixth round draft pick.. In another bold move the GM adds three young players with considerable talent and upside.  Still plugging holes caused by the Nash trade, and […]

Bold Move by Sather

In a bold move signifying New York Rangers management hasn’t given up on the season, Glen Sather acquired Ryane Clowe from the San Jose Sharks. A prototypical hard nosed old school Patrick Division player, Clowe is a welcome addition to a team that saw a lot of heart leave with the unaffordable Brandon Prust. Going the other way a second round pick […]

Season Preview

It took more than three months to get the season started finally, but now as we head to the eve of the season opener against the Bruins, there is plenty of optimism around, and one goal in mind: win the Cup. With 34 fewer games this year, and an abbreviated camp and no preseason, it’s […]

Big Apple Turnover

Every year you expect some degree of turnover.  Trades, free agency and injuries or conspire to change the face of an organization from year to year.  With still more than seven weeks to go until camp opens up on September 21st, the Rangers once again will have some significant differences. Ten players who were on […]

Let’s Review

After the Buffalo game the Rangers were looking at seven games in thirteen days, Christmas, a Boxing day scuffle with the Islanders, and the rapidly approaching January 2nd outdoor match in Philly. Not exactly make or break, but still a very important signature point in the season. Do they roll? Derail? Or plod along in a […]

Homeward Bound

This Thursday the Rangers will finally get to do something they haven’t done so far this season – play a game on home ice.  It’s been an up and down start to the season, but what could easily have been an unmitigated disaster has proven to be an above par showing. In the seven games […]

Statistical Comparison – 4 Games In

The Rangers have had a very different start to the year than last season.  They’ve had to deal with games in Europe, a trip to Long Island, followed by a visit to Vancouver, one of the most distant oppponents they have in the league.  Last year they also visited Long Island, but in their first […]
